How To Take TOTAL Control Of Your Network Marketing Business

    Published on:

    Today I want to share something with you that changed my life and my business. I think it can change yours too. 

    We have become a culture of blamers. It seems like nobody takes responsibility for anything anymore. Everybody loves to blame their problems on someone or something else – anyone but themselves. I grew up a professional blamer. Nothing was ever my fault. And I brought that habit into my Network Marketing career. 

    Sometimes blaming everything on someone or something else worked to my benefit because I would convince somebody that something wasn’t my fault then I could slide by. 

    I slid by in school because I would blame some circumstance for the fact that I didn’t turn my schoolwork in. I slid by in the workplace because I would blame somebody else for a problem and they would get in trouble and I wouldn’t. But when I tried this with my Network Marketing business, I couldn’t slide by. 

    I would say my upline wasn’t helping me or the meetings were bad. I would say that I was told that the product sells itself and it doesn’t. I would say I could be successful if I lived in a small town where I could meet more people and everybody knew everybody. I would blame my lack of success on anything – the government, the economy, the training – anything.

    But here’s the thing – even if I made an excuse and won a battle, I still lost the war. My business didn’t improve, my check didn’t get bigger and my organization didn’t grow.

    So I made a change.

    I took my mentor Jim Rohn’s advice about taking responsibility. I’ve worked on it my whole life and I still work on it today. Instead of blame being my knee-jerk response, I think about what I can do better, how I can handle this situation better, how I can respond to this comment better.. In other words, how can I solve this problem?

    The moment that you blame somebody else your ability to control your life disappears. When you take responsibility and decide what action YOU can take to solve problems, you regain control of your life.

    There are a couple ways you can start making this change. One, if you find yourself blaming everyone and everything for problems you encounter, come up with a system to hold yourself accountable. And two, surround yourself with people who will call you on your BS.

    So stop blaming and start taking responsibility. If I can do it, you can do it too!
